  7.  The Nebula of Georgia at The Pensacola Little Theatre, May 19-27. A dramedy written by one of our own, Joe Nierle, this story of a family in Georgia is chock full of Southernisms and great characters. When a wayward daughter comes home for a funeral, her chilly reception by her family has nothing to do with the sweltering house and everything to do with the family secret that comes to light.

  9. Palafox Market and Palafox Market South Saturday, May 20, 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. Rain or Shine. Martin Luther King Jr. Plaza on N. Palafox St. between Wright St. and
    Garden St., and now a second location in Plaza Ferdinand in historic Downtown Pensacola.
  10. Luke & Kaylee at Lucy’s in the Square, Thursday, May 18 at 5:30 p.m. These former Belmont University students are in town from Nashville. With over 3 million streams, this duo is on Spotify’s Editorial Playlist and has a great sound.
